Overloaded Cargo Can Fall And Cause Accidents
Trucks are designed to hold a certain amount of cargo, both volume and weight. When a truck is intentionally overloaded, it creates an extremely dangerous situation. Not only is there a risk of the cargo falling out and harming other drivers, but an overweight truck may be difficult for a driver to control. This can lead to devastating collisions between the truck and other cars on the road.
If you have been hurt or experienced the wrongful death of a family member as a result of falling debris from an overloaded truck in Massachusetts, you deserve compensation for your losses. The negligent truck driver who overloaded the truck, as well as the trucking company and insurance company, should be held responsible for this oversight.
Get Help Fighting For The Compensation You Deserve
Insurance companies are extremely aggressive when representing trucking companies because there is a lot to lose. They are very good at finding ways to limit or eliminate the claims of truck accident victims. Do not talk to the insurance companies on your own.
We have the experience to handle the insurance companies in your personal injury case, to help you get the best compensation award possible in your case. Tell the insurance company to call your lawyer.
